Toby doggedly pursues Halo, the Knucker gets Sláine in to trouble, big jobs in Mega-City One (but not from Mek-Quake), the un-named adviser advises Rogue, Rudd turns on the Nebbs.
Brendan McCarthy cover featuring blind Dredd facing off against future zombie Dredd! The Mutant doesn't look right though (he seems to have gained eyes). No letters this week in the Nerve Centre, instead a feature on Free "Dune" stickers and news that the Mega-plan will be revealed next prog (first touted a year earlier). Rogue … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 402: Free inside! 6 ‘Dune’ stickers! (not available to overseas readers) “Joe Dredd, meet… Joe Dredd!”
Steve Dillon is back on City of the Damned, and it starts on the cover as the Mutant gets to grips with McGruder. Tharg's Nerve Centre announces the return of the ABC Warriors in Nemesis the Warlock and reveals that a fact file has been programmed to appear this prog, before the Nemesis episode. Otherwise, … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 397: ++City of the Damned – let chaos reign!++ “Gaze upon the DOOM that was foretold!”
Judge Dredd looks a bit green around the gills in this portrait while the almost full-length pic of the lawman does a jazz hand while firing in this Carlos Ezquerra cover. Meanwhile a ruddy Mega-Cityscape merges in to big Dredd-head's helmet. On the other side of the front cover, Carlos Ezquerra is back to present … Continue reading Judge Dredd Annual 1985: He is the law in Mega-City!
Robin Smith gives us the largest Tharg's head we've seen on this very green and blue cover. Tharg's Nerve Centre opens with a big Tharg note detailing how to get back progs, annuals and specials and ends with an advert for the Forbidden Planet (Titan) T-shirts. I spot two original designs by Mick McMahon - … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 365: I, Tharg, bring you Thill-power!
Ian Gibson introduces us to dragons in Sláine (and possibly a first for 2000AD as well, can't remember any dragons appearing prior to this cover). We don't know what we're seeing yet, but the prey of the dragon is in 'dragon-vision'. This was the first prog to be sold for 22p. Tharg's Nerve Centre has … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 361: Sláine …Enter the Dragon!
Cam Kennedy is back on Sláine - Sky Chariots cover duty as he depicts a one-on-one fight between Sláine and a Norseman berserker. Tharg's Nerve Centre shares space between two pieces of reader's art, two letters, the voting coupon, an obligatory stamp advert and the Titan / Forbidden Planet advert for Judge Child Book Three. … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 357: 100 Judge Dredd games to be won – this prog! Invasion of the berserks! Sláine
With blurb like that you'd expect Nemesis to make it on to the cover, would you? Not that I'm complaining about the first (original) Carlos Ezquerra cover of Strontium Dog in over two years - the biggest gap ever (even from prog 1 to the first appearance on the cover). There's a couple of letters … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 339: The siege of the century – in Nemesis the Warlock!
I was surprised last prog that the Crime Swoop only comprised Dredd and Hershey kicking down an apartment door and yelling "Crime Swoop!" - the reason for this is that the the real swoop happens this prog, as you can tell from Ron Smith's cover. The Mega-Times cover reveals that this story takes place in … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 338: “Good evening, citizens…” “CRIME SWOOP!”
Kevin O'Neill provides the kind of cover we've never seen before - a homunculus-eye view of being born, from inside the egg! Pretty sure we've not seen that since either. Or in any other comic, for that matter. In Tharg's Nerve Centre TMO states that this prog is an attempt at the Galactic Thrill-Power record, … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 337: Something slimy this way comes… Join Nemesis at the Hatching!
